This is a category I never dreamed I would fall into a few years ago, however God had different plans and now I am so glad this is part of who I am. One year ago I was 32 weeks pregnant and trying to get ready for the birth of our twins, little did we know in two short weeks they would arrive. The last year has been a whirlwind of craziness, but it has been the best year of my life-one I would never trade for anything.

First is my local Moms of Multiples club. I joined just a few weeks before the twins were born and have really enjoyed going through this season of life with other ladies doing it to. I have developed some great friendships that I hope will last a lifetime and I know I support beyond belief here. Luckily we have not had first hand experience but I have watched this group rally around other members as they have gone through the darkest of times-most recently as one had to say goodbye to one of their 16 month old twins who lost his battle to cancer. (Please pray for the Watson family) Our club was there to help with child care, meals, huge prayer warriors and so on. I know these are ladies I can count on no matter what the need. If you have twins or are expecting twins I would really encourage you to see if you can find one of these in your community. In our club we have monthly meetings of various topics, mom's night out, play-dates and seasonal parties.
Next is through twitter (@cmgalloway) and this blog. I love my twin mommas on twitter. It is a support group all the time! While none of us know each other in real life we love on each other and support each other in huge ways. You have those who are always there to encourage who have been where you are and those who are right in the same place so you can compare what you each are doing and what works and what doesn't. I never thought I would be into twitter, but for this reason alone I love it so much. Come over and join us we always love more twin tweeps.
Are you a twin mom or a super twin mom? If so leave a comment I would love to get to "know" you!
